Hotel Staff could not be more helpful, the rooms are clean if a little run down. The food was very good with a wide choice, especially for the price. We booked especially for Burns Night as a 50th birthday celebration but were sadly disappointed by the entertainer who didn't even dress for the occasion nor pipe the haggis in, either live or recorded. His script was not in order, he had dirty jeans on and made excuses for arriving late. The food was good which was all that can be said about the night. (The Tartan pub around the corner apparently did Robbie proud on the Sunday with a live piper)
I would defiantly go back to this hotel and to beautiful Oban but we celebrate Robbie Burns better at home!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a prime location, right in the centre of the curving esplanade, just a pleasant walk from the shops and harbour, stands Oban's Great Western; a hotel proud of offering space and comfort, as well as magnificent views of the bay (remember to look out for those memorable sunsets!). Ideal for a relaxing holiday, the activity on the bay can simply be watched from the welcoming lounge and cocktail bar, while it's also an ideal touring centre. With Glencoe, serene lochs and the Western Isles on the doorstep, there's a myriad of sightseeing opportunities. And with coast and country walks, angling, sailing, diving, bird-watching and a whole host of other leisure pursuits at hand, you should never be at a loss for something to do. ... more less
